Method

  1. Heat the oil in frying pan, then fry the onions over a medium heat until soft and beginning to brown, about 5 mins. Meanwhile, reserve 8 of the tomato wedges, then whizz the remainder in a food processor with the ginger and garlic.
  2. Add the curry paste to the pan for 30 secs. Stir through the tomato mix and remaining tomato wedges, then bubble over a high heat for 5 mins, stirring so the sauce doesn’t catch. Mix in the prawns and peas; simmer until prawns are pink and cooked through. Scatter with coriander, then serve with rice.

Is there anything that works well in this curry, apart from prawns? They are so expensive that I only have them about once a year! If I made it as it is, without the prawns, would it still be tasty enough, do you think?

Made this instead of getting a takeaway!! Was really pleased with the results! I did use a little more curry paste than the recipe said, and also half a tin of chopped tomatoes as I like alot of sauce!! Have leftovers in the freezer and will make again for sure!

Delicious, quick and healthy too. Added some fresh chilli to the ginger/garlic paste and a quick sprinkle of garam masala before serving.

What a lovely curry! I added a bit of extra chilling with the onions to give it a bit more of a kick.

This is one of the simplest, quickest, freshest curries ever and I have made it several times. I am a veggie, so add a quorn fillet instead of prawns, but I have made it for a friend with prawns and it went down a treat!

One of the best homemade curry recipes

Only used 5 garlic cloves and only 2 tbsp curry paste, as my husband doesnt like curries that are too hot, this was just perfect and he really enjoyed it! will keep this as a run up for Christmas for my son who is a curry fan

Made this, but there wa a strong taste of lemon, will try and make again but adding coconut milk, see if this helps.

I made this last week and it was sooo good. My husband and I really enjoyed it even though he prefers a spicier curry he really enjoyed it because of the richness of flavours.
